Cultural Diversity Learning for Adolescents By Raihan Sayeed

Introduction • Raihan Sayeed, a pre-medical student at Loyola University Chicago, has traveled extensively both as a volunteer and as a participant in culturallearning missions. Raihan Sayeed has participated in a number of medical and educational outreach trips to India. In addition, Ray Sayeed has traveled to Africa as a member of his high school Global Awareness team.

About Cultural Diversity • In an increasingly global society, cultural learning is an invaluable and irreplaceable part of the teenage years. Adolescents who experience other cultures understand that theirs is not the only way of living, a realization that in turn helps them to cultivate compassion and a mind more open to new ideas. Travel is an ideal way of providing this understanding, as it allows teenagers to experience another culture firsthand rather than through books or lectures.

Conclusion • When teenagers experience another country and culture, they also come to realize what it feels like to be an “other.” Teenagers begin to see themselves and their own cultures from an outside perspective, which is an important element of interacting with people from all walks of life. As a result, traveling teenagers emerge from their world experiences with more understanding of others, a desire for community, and a willingness to think in new ways about interpersonal issues.
